The author, Cynthia Freeland 'explains why innovation and controversy in art are constantly in the headlines, and why it matters. She discusses the relationship of art with beauty, culture, money, sex, and new techology, and draws on examples from Rembrandt, Goya, and Damien Hirst to African nail fetishes, Indian Pueblo dancing, and MTV.' - excerpt from the inside flap of cover.
